Player of the Week
Amanda Conway – Norwich University
(Sophomore, Forward– Methuen, Mass.)

Conway scored twice in a 3-3 tie vs. No. 4-ranked Wis. River Falls in the season opener. She also tallied an assist to have a hand in the scoring for all three NU goals. Conway also scored a goal and had an assist in a 7-0 win over Stevenson. Conway was named to the All-Tournament team for her five-point weekend.

Co-Goaltenders of the Week
Alexis Kalm – Castleton University
(Sophomore, Goaltender – Aberdeen, N.C.)

player Kalm made 36 saves and several game-changing plays in her lone start of the week against the Oswego State Lakers, who are receiving votes in the latest national poll. The sophomore goaltender kept the Spartans in the game long enough for them to come back and force overtime against a very tough Laker squad.

Britney Evangelista – University of Southern Maine
(Sophomore, Goaltender – North Smithfield, R.I.)

player Evangelista recorded a career-high 45 saves in a 3-0 loss at nationally ranked Endicott College. The sophomore netminder kept the Huskies in the game allowing only one goal in each period. She made 34 saves over the first two periods alone.

Rookie of the Week
Ali Stevens - Castleton University
(Freshman, Forward – Jefferson, Mass.)

player Stevens began her collegiate career with a bang, scoring her first-career goal in Castleton's 7-2 win over Becker College on Friday. After she scored the game's second goal, she assisted on the eventual game-winning score just minutes later. On Saturday against Oswego State the freshman scored Castleton's first goal, converting a power play situation.



Honor Roll

Lisa Kilroy – Castleton University
(Senior, Forward – Leominster, Mass.)

Kilroy led the Spartans through their first two games of the 2017-18 season with four points. In Castleton's home-opening 7-2 win over Becker College, Kilroy scored the team's first goal, before converting a power play opportunity later in the game. On Saturday at Oswego, Kilroy recorded a pair of assists, helping on both of the Spartans' goals. The Leominster, Mass. native gave the final pass in both situations, including on the game-tying overtime-forcing score with 0.9 seconds remaining in regulation.
